We ate dinner at Mario's - ordered the melanzane parmigiana (eggplant) & the vitelo porcini (veal). Both meals were delicious. Our waiter was very good. We didn't have appetizers but we did have the tiramisu which was one of the best we've tasted. We would...More

The food was very good but the server was slow and did not get the appetizer orders correct. Not a bad place to eat if you have more than an hour for lunch. Also, not many options for gluten and dairy free diet restrictions.

We ate at Mario's last night and really enjoyed our wine and food. The pomodora was very good and fresh. Husbands salad was dresses perfectly. Reno's food prices are pretty high so the meals were very reasonable for the area.

We always stop in for a meal when we are in town. The food is always excellent and the service is fantastic. Even on a busy weekend with no reservation we feel welcome. Many of the pastas are handmade and the coconut cheesecake is decadent!

The atmosphere here feels Italian. On previous visits we loved the experience. We shared an appetizer of calamari which was excellent. Also had a Caesar salad, very disappointed. No croutons?? Really, never had one without croutons. My husband ordered a side of bolognese which was...More

Very good Italian restaurant with great food and service. Server Annaleas was very helpful. We compared the chianti with the Classico chianti and found we liked the house chianti better, and it was less expensive. Triple chocolate cake was a good ending to a very...More
